Seychelles makes the list: World’s Most Incredible Private Islands

The latest Mason’s Travel Newsletter just out confirms that three of Seychelles’ islands have made the Condé Nast Traveller’s list of “The World’s 22 Most Incredible Private Islands,” namely Denis Private Island, North Island, and Frégate Island Private.

Denis Private Island

A natural paradise, Denis Private Island is a coraline island located just 30 minutes by plane from Seychelles’ main island of Mahé. The island’s tag-line is “Barefoot Luxury at its finest,” and here visitors will discover just that when staying in their own secluded beach front cottage. Marked by a progressive conservation program that keeps the island in pristine natural splendor, and its own organic farm providing only the freshest ingredients to its acclaimed restaurant, Denis Island truly is a gem in the Seychelles crown.

North Island

Located among the inner granitic islands of Seychelles, North Island is a fertile paradise featuring just eleven private guest villas, offering each guest an unparalleled sense of exclusivity and luxury amidst spectacular natural scenery.

The island’s lavish Presidential Villa Is renowned the world over as being one of the most exclusive accommodation options for the discerning luxury traveler.

Frégate Island Private

Located just 55 kilometers (35 miles) off Seychelles’ main island of Mahé, the natural surroundings are home to free roaming Aldabra giant tortoises, sea turtles, and a plethora of rare and exotic birds, all cared for in an ambitious conservation program. Here, guests will discover a luxury castaway experience in one of 16 villas nestled amidst the flora and fauna of the island, and on the shores of the pristine waters of the Indian Ocean. The island also offers The Banyan Hill Estate on its own secluded peninsula, as well as a private inland harbor and yacht club.
